1. Praise, My Soul, the King of Heaven 

Praise, my soul, the King of heaven: 

To His feet thy tribute bring; 
Ransomed, healed, restored, forgiven, 
Who Hke thee His praise shall sing? 
Praise Him! praise Him! 
Praise Him! praise Him! 
Praise the everlasting King! 

Father-like He tends and spares us 

Well our feeble frame He knows; 

In His hands He gently bears us, 

Rescues us from all our foes: 

Praise Him! praise Him! 

Praise Him! praise Him! 

Widely as His mercy flows. 

Angels, help us to adore Him, 
Ye behold Him face to face! 
Sun and moon, bow down before Him! 
Dwellers all in time and space, 
Praise Him! praise Him! 
Praise Him! praise Him! 
Praise with us the God of grace! 

2. Hiding In Thee 

Oh, safe to the Rock that is higher than I, 
My soul in its conflicts and sorrows would fly; 
So sinful, so weary. Thine, Thine would I be; 
Thou blest "Rock of Ages", I'm hiding in Thee. 

Hiding in Thee, hiding in Thee 

Thou blest "Rock of Ages," I'm hiding in Thee. 

In the calm of the noontide, in sorrow's lone hour, 
In times w'hen temptation casts o'er me its power; 
In the tempests of life, on its wide, heaving sea, 
Thou blest "Rock of Ages," I'm hiding in Thee. 

How oft in the conflict, when pressed by the foe, 
I have fled to my Refuge and breathed out my woe; 
How often when trials like sea-billows roll. 
Have I hidden in Thee, O Thou Rock of my soul.

3. O Jesus, I Have Promised 

Jesus, I have promised 
To serve Thee to the end; 

Be Thou for ever near me, 
My Master and my Friend! 

1 shall not fear the battle, 
If Thou art by my side; 

Nor wander from the pathway, 
If Thou wilt be my Guide. 

Oh, let me feel Thee near me. 

The world is ever near; 
I see the sights that dazzle, 

The tempting sounds I hear: 
My foes are ever near me, 

Around me and within ; 
But, Jesus, draw Thou nearer 

And shield my soul from sin. 

O Jesus, Thou hast promised 

To all who follow Thee, 
That where Thou art in glory 

There shall Thy servant be! 
And, Jesus, I have promised 

To serve Thee to the end; 
Oh, give me grace to follow 

My Master and my Friend!
